* As mentioned, the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' series.
** In the DVD extras, the director tells us that they created an elaborate visual sequence for time travel, putting it under the previous version. Then they decided that time travel wouldn't have any such visuals.

* Although ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' uses the Wormhole method in the earlier stages of the game, once you acquire the Epoch, it switches to the instantaneous variety.
** And once the Epoch becomes an airship, it even accelerates to a high speed immediately before time-warping, making the way it works appear almost exactly the same as Back to the Future's flying [=DeLorean=].
* The MentalTimeTravel on ''Series/{{Lost}}'' [[spoiler:as well as whatever the heck happened to Ben at the end of season 4]] were instantaneous.
** A straighter example of instantaneous time travel was seen in the first half of season five, albeit not by choice and causing loads and loads of painful headaches and fatal nosebleeds. And was actually seen as [[spoiler: a cause of MentalTimeTravel as seen with Charlotte before she died]].

* Franchise/ArrowVerse handles time travel this way. When [[SuperSpeed speedsters]] time travel, they run fast enough to resonate with the Speed Force and enter it (which looks like a wormhole), at which point they can visualize where and when they want to go and appear there. The method used by the Time Masters involves jumping into the time stream (which appears like a different wormhole) and traveling through it to their destination. Only the former method attracts [[ClockRoaches Time Wraiths]], though.

* In the ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' novels there is one instance of Nagato sending Kyon and Asahina three years forward in time in what Kyon experiences as an instant.

* In ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' novels, whenever Kyon is time traveling, he has to close his eyes because it makes him so sick he could puke. The reader doesn't learn much of what is happening, but the hints sound like a version of [[OurWormholesAreDifferent Wormhole Time Travel]].

* ''Series/{{Timeless}}'' uses this version. Two times machines exist: the Lifeboat (the prototype three-person pod) and the larger Mothership (a sleek [=iPod=]-looking sphere that can fit 8-10 people). The wormhole is never shown, except on a diagram. Only a few people are trained to pilot a time machine, and precise navigation (both temporal and spacial) is required.
